New build released

June 19

Today's build of the game should address two issues:
1) Save/restore should work more reliably. We added bullet-proof armor around the code to make sure it'll work every time.
2) A few players reported being asked to "pay" for the game near chapter 5, even though they'd already bought the full game. This issue should be resolved.

Note that you might now see an error message like this: "There was an error connecting to Steam." If you encounter this error, try restarting Steam and rebooting your computer. If that doesn't fix the problem, please e-mail us at support@choiceofgames.com. We'll do our best to help you out.

If you enjoy playing Heroes Rise, please take time to give us a nice review. It really helps.

About the Game

It's America's #1 reality show for heroes! As a contestant on "The Hero Project," you'll battle villains and heroes alike with your newly discovered "Infini" powers. Will you vote to eliminate your rivals, or betray your alliance to curry favor with the celebrity judges?

"Heroes Rise: The Hero Project" is the sequel to last year's hit "Heroes Rise: The Prodigy," the epic interactive novel by Zachary Sergi, where your choices determine how the story proceeds. The game is entirely text-based--without graphics or sound effects--and driven by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

Play as male or female, gay or straight; you can even start a "showmance" with the other contestants. What will you sacrifice to become the nation's next top hero?

The main problem with this game is that instead of selecting choices that you want to make, you have to look at the wordings of the choice and try to GUESS what the developer think of those choices. Even worst, if you guess wrongly, you lose the game.

I guess it is really like a reality game where you have to guess the preference of the judges, but it does not feel super hero worthy at all.

Unlike the first game where I get the feeling of actually giving my super hero a personality, this one seems to be about making random choice with unknown consequence again and again.

Fittingly for a sequel, this is pretty much the same as Heroes Rise: The Prodigy. If you've played that and liked it, you'll like this one. If you didn't, then you won't like this one either. Both are too linear for my tastes, though to be fair the writing in this one has improved somewhat.

Considering the price (I got it for 4 euros), I really enjoyed this. Actually, I paid 4 euros for "The Hero Project" and "The Prodigy", but I had mistaken the order and played "The Hero Project" first.

It took me around 4 hours or so to finish, but it was quite a nice 4 hours. It's definitely not an A-list story, I'd expected a bit more and it did end rather abruptly, but it's quite a nice little thing.

I've wasted more money on A-list games that provided less entertainment. If you want a nice little distraction, get it. If you're hard to please, go write your own damn book.

The best one within heroes rise trilogy
To me, it has the most lengthy story ( 5 hours for one playthrough comparing to 3 hours for the other two
The most difficult choice to make ( where you have to choose between dream and friendship
And the best conflict in the whole game
It's not as good as the Prodigal, it's better

For a text-based game it's quite good, the writing's solid and it took me about 4 hours to finish, which is a fair length for a game this cheap, I mean, some of the more modern Call Of Duty titles have shorter singleplayer campaigns. Some people may point to the fact that the game is linear and that occasionally your choices may make you feel "Boxed In", however, the choices presented to you are great enough and of a large enough depth that you may deviate from the main story arc and play the kind of hero you may want to play, however you will soak the fallout for whatever decisions you might choose.

In short; the game is good, and gives you more entertainment than expected of a game with such a small pricetag.
Oh, and if you have the few extra units of whatever currency you possess, buy the bundle or the perfect legend guide + warning system. They help in the long run.
